O.K, so I'm not very good at this writing daily's more like a writing weekly thing.

So, what's happened since I last wrote? We had a gloriously beautiful 3 day weekend. Daddyman,the Hawk, the Sparrow and I went to San Francisco to ride the cable cars.

The Sparrow got a taste of ocean water at the Fisherman's Wharf......oops!

Then we got lunch at In and Out...

Oh yeah........Obama is now the President!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!!!!

Wow! Has it really been five days since I last posted?

I'm still hobbling about...although the pain is not as bad...but, there is still swelling on the side of the knee.

The Hawk got back last night. He says he had a good time. Still haven't heard anything about the trip......ya gotta have some time to get used to being back home after being surrounded by so many people all day long for 3 days...

I've been watching Barack Obama's rail trip from Philadelphia to D.C. throughout today. Is this exciting or what? I just wish I could watch the inauguration live on Tuesday...unfortunately I'll be working.

Went to the doctor today...I have bursitis...which is swelling of something around my knee called the bursae. Help for it...a painful cortisone shot in the knee. I have to rest it for a week...then do exercises to strengthen the ligaments around it.

I think the Hawk is getting a little excited about the big fieldtrip this Wednesday. They will leave at 6am from school. The first day is a tour of UCLA ...a visit to The Getty Center. Day two is the main part of the trip...The Museum of Tolerance. They also will go to the Griffith Observatory.They will come back friday evening. I don't remember going on such cool fieldtrips....

I finally figured out how to get pictures from the camera to the computer. Maybe tomorrow I'll get some posted.

Dealing with chronic pain is such a.....pain! My right knee has been bothering me off and on for the past month. It keeps swelling up and in general just aches. In the beginning it was pretty mild, but it's reached the point of me limping along like an old lady. Oh well, it's in to see the doctor on Monday. Hopefully it won't be anything major to fix it.

It was back to work and school on this cold, drizzly day. Those who have been on vacastion for the past two weeks were not happy campers. Oh well, such is life.
The Sparrow stayed home from school today with a very bad warranted a visit to the doctor for a breathing treatment. Fortunately, she's on the mend now.

I've been having a bad hair day for quite a I went and got my hair done. I must say it looks pretty nice. .

Today was one of those rainy, dreary days that makes you want to stay in bed all day. Unfortunately I had to go in to work while Daddyman and the Hawk slept in. I don't understand why the center doesn't close down during this week. There were four children the entire day...and 5 staff. I went home early...

We've already put ourselves into moving mode. Stuff is already getting donated or thrown out. It's pretty amazing what you can accumulate over 14 years. The next challenge will be finding a new place to live.

What have you been up to today?

New Beginnings

I always love New Years Day. It's a day to reflect on the past year and see what worked and what didn't. It's also an opportunity to look forward with hope to the coming new year and what it might bring. Hope you all are doing some of that.

Why did I start this blog? I thought it might be a nice way for the members of our family to communicate with each other and to let you know what's going on with us.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
